Ivy Hall 

SCAD Atlanta’s Writing Program finds its home at Ivy Hall. First known as the Peters House, Ivy Hall was rehabilitated by SCAD to preserve one of the first homes in Georgia thought to fully embody the Queen Anne-Victorian architectural style. The 4,339-square-foot structure is thought to be Atlanta’s oldest, most complete and single most important residence from  the post-Civil War period known as the New South. A magnificent and majestic venue, the facility provides a stimulating and creative learning environment for the university’s writing program and is the ideal setting for prominent authors to share their works and professional experiences.
